I agree with Greys about the dog poo. Didn't work with Spirit though when she dug holes & I put it in to stop her making the hole bigger. Little minx dug it up & had a good old . Disgusting dog. What did work with her was camphor rub & lots of people use it with great success. Spirit was just about ring barking the trees out back, so I smeared the trucks & hey presto, stopped chewing immediately.
Just as a temporary, do it tonight kinda thing, in that 3rd piccy where you've got those temp boards, flip them back up so the side the dog will sniff is facing you. Get some Camphor rub. Vicks is too expensive, but the home brand stuff is just as effective. Smear it all over the boards & on the bottom of the existing fence. You might want to get a couple of rocks, smear them as well & have them backed up against the temp wood. Most dog get a whiff of that camphor up their noses & in their eyes & they back right off. It's petroleum based, so is water proof. Batty might give the area a big miss if they get a whiff, so that's one half of the problem solved with Batty not wanting to go near that area. If the dog on the other side is deterred as well .... peace a last. A cheap temporary possible solution until you can get those railway sleepers.
Ok, Batty has had just half an Arnica tablet. I spoke to the pharmacist and explained what was going on - turns out he uses it for his dogs too! So I gave him the weight and he told me one tablet should be fine, but to give him half, wait an hour then give him the other half.
Thank you so much to everyone!
I've mentioned this before, but worth repeating here. I give my lot a dose am & pm Saturdays & Sundays to deal with any bumps, bruises & strains they may have picked up during the week. They have a weekly massage & rarely do they groan & wince in pain like the other dogs I help out with while I'm there. Mish is well over 12 now & the old girl still has a spring in her step around the house & when we go to the park every morning. There has to be something to this Arnica that works is all I can say ....
I will definitely do that, thank you so much I'll pop down to the vets with him tomorrow morning (they're going to be sick of me! It's a good thing the nurses love him ) and get my vet to quickly check him over too, just in case there is something I've missed.
